The first half or so of June was tough. The weather here in Portland was downright wet and gloomy for the most part. I’m still adjusting to living with so many people and have been surprised to see what others level of cleanliness and responsibility are. And, to what may come as a surprise to anyone who knows I don’t like animals, I’ve been catsitting a couple of my housemates’ cat while they went to the mid-West. Now that they both have Covid, it doesn’t look like they’ll be home for another week or two. So, my life feels like it’s in this weird limbo.
The weather did change like a light switch when Summer (finally!) came. I loved getting to enjoy the sun. I even took one of my long somewhat ridiculous trips to visit Silverton- four buses, three hours, one way. You can read about my adventures there here.
I also did a somewhat fun, no-pressure Spring Bucket List and I completed most of it.
I did complete my Reading the Rainbow LGBTQ+ BINGO.
I’ve been trying The StoryGraph to avoid the Amazon-owned Goodreads but I may end up moving back after all for the convenience of just copy/pasting my book reviews and ratings onto my blog.
So far in 2022, I’ve read 311 books. The breakdown is:
9- Adult novels
5- Adult non-fiction
24- Graphic novels
45- Middle Grade novels (Goal: 52)
221- Picture Books and Board Books
7- Young Adult novels
86- Nonfiction Picture Books (Goal: 104)
32- Audio Books
Now for the reviews…
I did read a few books to learn more Juneteenth. I recommend doing the same for next year.
You can view all my reviews over on The StoryGraph.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy Reading!
